      Performance was great! Camera position wasn't great, as we couldn't see some of the performers sometime. Also, video quality wasn't great, but sound was.

      They are so great together - wonderful music, beautifully played with such warmth and feeling. Just brilliant. We just wished we could have been there. Streaming is a great substitute, the sound was great, and the mood and feeling come across. Let's hope that the concert window technology will improve so that the image is also great one day.

      5 stars musically but he visual was sometimes frustrating: I loved the music so very very much and got used to the freezing and unfreezing but the placement of the Microphone needs to be considered; sometimes it obstructed views of singers and often it was really hard to see hands (I was so glued to it all that I wanted more more more). I think shape-signing is so fascinating, beautiful and importnat that it is worth saying something a little specific about its history (not just how it works but the context in which it really flourished: name its geography, other song traditions it complemented? not just say it's "very old"). I love the attention to this and to blue grass and I don't think you'd need to say more than a few sentences to get people wanting more. It made me feel young and lyrical to listen to these wonderful musicians - even the tuning was part of the fun. And even though I'm 74 I wnat to sing still. again. And being able to be there and in our kitchen, finishing dinner, with all of you --- it is great to feel that in this worried world, we can still feel some moments are miraculous moments! Thank you all!
